“Elated” is the debut single from dreamTX, a “post-post-rock” project from Nick Das. He’s long been a member of the shoegaze band Kraus and has a co-write on the early Maggie Rogers single “On + Off.” This stuff errs on the underground side, albeit a segment of the underground that has been thriving and influential in recent years. I’m hearing a lot of the twisted indie-pop stuff a la Alex G and Teen Suicide, various waves of emo, nouveau shoegaze stuff like Jane Remover and Parannoul… you get the gist, I think? Listen to “Elated” below and see how it makes you feel.
“Elated” is out now on Memorials Of Distinction.
